Coro­ner rules in man’s death

Los Angeles Times - - OBITUARIES -

A man who was shot mul­ti­ple times with a stun gun by U.S. im­mi­gra­tion au­thor­i­ties at a San Diego bor­der cross­ing died of car­diac ar­rest, the San Diego County Med­i­cal Ex­am­iner’s Of­fice said Tues­day.

Fran­cisco Ce­sena’s car­diac ar­rest oc­curred be­cause he was shot with elec­tric­ity, held face down, and was un­der the in­flu­ence of metham­phetamine and heroin, ac­cord­ing to a re­port from the coro­ner’s of­fice. His death was ruled a homi­cide.

The re­port says the 40year-old El Ca­jon res­i­dent be­came com­bat­ive when he re­turned from Mex­ico at the San Ysidro port of en­try Dec. 24 and was told he was be­ing ar­rested. He was wanted on a felony ar­rest war­rant.

Cus­toms and Bor­der Pro­tec­tion says it will con­duct a re­view af­ter the FBI in­ves­ti­gates.
